Road trip!

I just returned from a month long road trip from Nevada to Wisconsin and back. I went for a wedding and for my sons’ annual family reunion camping. I won’t bore you with too many details, but I will say that Boulder and Denver were awesomely entertaining and well worth checking out. The Coors brewery tour was interesting and informative. The Cave of the Mounds in Blue Mounds, WI is amazingly beautiful. Nebraska is a lot more fun to drive through if you stop and check out the cities instead of a whole day of boring flat driving.
Also, I saved a ton in gas money by picking up what I like to call Professional Hitchhikers, people who post on rideshare under the community section on Craigslist. And I met some very interesting people who used Couchsurfing.org to travel cheaply and, of course, I joined and couchsurfed a bit myself. I took about 400 photos, but most of them were of the kids. Here is some of our trip:
